The Iranian government announced on Tuesday that the second round of parliamentarians, scheduled for April and postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, will take place on September 11th.
The spokesman for the executive, Ali Rabiei, warned in statements to the Iranian news agency Tasnim that the election campaign of the candidates must take place without public events as part of the restrictions imposed on the coronavirus.
However, he has stated that the capital Tehran will not hold the vote, which will take place in 2021 together with the president and local authorities. The city is one of the most important epicentres of the pandemic in the Asian country.
The second round of elections was postponed in March at the suggestion of the Interior Ministry, which was subsequently approved by the Guardian Council. The first round took place in February, despite criticism of the vote despite the pandemic.
